U.S. Sending 4 Million AstraZeneca Vaccine Doses to Mexico and Canada

If they want them, they can have them.

Millions of people in several countries have received the AstraZeneca vaccination, with just under 50 developing blood clots soon after. Because millions of people around the world develop blood clots each year, the numbers aren’t high enough to show causation, and there hasn’t been any such development in clinical trials.

Still, people are worried. Several nations stopped administering the vaccine only to restart at a later date.

The U.S. has millions of doses in storage but has not yet approved it for use. Now we’ll start sharing with other nations that have approved it.

The United States plans to send roughly 4 million doses of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine that it is not using to Mexico and Canada in loan deals with the two countries. Mexico will receive 2.5 million doses of the vaccine and Canada will receive 1.5 million doses.

The Biden administration has come under pressure from allies worldwide to share vaccine, particularly from AstraZeneca, which is authorized for use in other countries but not yet in the United States.

AstraZeneca has millions of doses made in a U.S. facility, and has said that it would have 30 million shots ready at the beginning of April.

The deal to share the vaccine, which is still being finalized, does not affect President Joe Biden’s plans to have vaccine available for all adults in the United States by the end of May, the official said. The deal is likely to be announced publicly in the coming days.

Two officials said the vaccine would be delivered in “short order” once the deal was completed, but they declined to give a more specific timetable.

The “releasable” vaccines are ready to be used once they arrive. Under the deal, the United States will share doses with Mexico and Canada now with the understanding that they will pay the United States back with doses in return. The official said that would take place later this year.

Meh…maybe we won’t ask them to give any back.

    No way !!! Blood clots Kill!! Biden better not “share” bad medicine with other countries until the company that is making the clot forming stuff figures out how to stop the forming of blood clots that kill people.

    Sending AstraSeneca vaccines that are known to cause blood clots to other countries is suicide. There will be major lawsuits. Trash them instead of passing them on to other countries. Keeping it here and distributing it to our citizens is murder. They’ll keep distributing it to citizens because they have made it clear they want to downsize our elderly population, yet allow illegals to enter. Our Present Administration is severely mentally unbalanced. They are looking for war. They are idiots!

      Sorry lady, but you are not following the science. 50 or so blood clots from millions of A-S vaccine doses is FAR less blood clots than for people withOUT the vaccine …, so to say the ‘A-S is known to cause blood clots’ is TOTALLY inaccurate and only ‘fake news’ being used for to support your fake beliefs. The best vaccine to take is the one that is first offered to you as they have ALL been VERY well tested and do NOT cause more blood clots than MANY other drugs or your propaganda beliefs. Please stay with proven facts.

    GREAT IDEA! Let somebody else be the trial guinea pigs. I’m certainly not one. OK, that sounds uncharitable after reading other more kindly comments, but it’s been reported by real medical scientists that the so-called vaccines will not prevent one from getting the Chinese flu, nor from giving it to anyone else, and you’d need to keep getting re-ups for the rest of your life. Also that they have no idea what the LONG RANGE effects will be on humans. Plus they say it’s far better to have a normal case of flu which provides true antibodies, and get over it in a couple of weeks, than to keep trying to avoid it by such questionable means. If you’re elderly, and/or have major medical problems, you have a good chance of succumbing one way or the other. I’m 85 and don’t want to muck up my life now just to contribute to the wealth of the drug companies.

    This ‘war on vaccines’ clearly needs more FACTUAL perspective. First of all, Covid19 is NOT a regular flu .., the death rate is FAR higher, the sickness far more potent and painful, and the new variants are now getting at younger, otherwise healthy individuals. To ignore this is putting FAR more people at risk.
    People need to be reminded that vaccines have been used to save MILLIONS of lives over the last 150 years and without them you yourself may not be here. Now, please take a big breath to get this firmly in your head. Due to vaccines giving us often life-long immunity, you are no longer at risk of:
    Whooping Cough, Diphtheria, Hepatitis A/B, Polio, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Scarlet Fever, Smallpox etc. etc with effective vaccines also available when required against: pheumococcal and meningococcal diseases, shingles and rabies etc .. so PLEASE, give our health professionals some credit and respect here …. these Covid Vaccines ARE saving 100’s of 1000’s of lives … perhaps even yours ! Intelligent people will know this and marvel at the benefit we can enjoy.
    And for perspective to my thoughts …. my mother was a nurse in Europe during the Spanish Flu .. and it was tragic.
